if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president has forgotten his mandate to be a uniter in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people should be voting out of what they think is best for the country in their heart. so that is the message that they've been delivering all day long. i can also tell you that the front of the campaign plane we have seen a higher number of top campaign advisers flying with the gop nominee including michael levitt who has been leading the readiness project, as they skaul it. i talked to governor levitt for just a few brief moments in iowa and he said what they've been doing is building a ship, he called it, that they hope will s

anything. that is the law of the state of ohio. i am the administer of the law. we have strict laws in regarding this. i have some latitude in setting uniform hours. but what we really like is the more people that vote early, the fewer people show up on election day and that means we have shorterlines at the polls because most people have already cast their ballots. or at least a lot of them. >> a lot of them, yeah. 1.3 million absentee ballots were requested. that's an issue because of the provisional ballots. if the people who said yes, i do want an absentee ballot don't turn it in and go to the polls and vote, then they'll have to do a provisional ballot. >> well, first of all, we want voters who requested their ballot to turn them in. we encourage them to do that. right now, we're at 8 pe85 perc of them have returned. and we think that the number could actually be smaller than it was the last time. so we're not concerned about that. >> we are because we're here and you can't count those ballots or those votes until november 17th. i'm joking, but the whole country could be waitin

finance laws in the country. we went out there to see what kind of effect all this outside money that's coming in. it's not just in the senate race. it's in down ballot races, local races, state, congressional and state legislative races. that's why you go out there. you discover real quick the people in montana don't want outside money. they don't want people telling them what to do. they don't want outside groups independently influencing campaigns. they just want people to leave them alone and let them make up their own minds, you know? >> what is fascinating to me about what's happening in montana is here you had a state, here you had law makers trying to do something about campaign finance reform and now you've got all these groups that managed to find ways around it. >> in 1912 the state of montana passed the corrupt passages act, the strictest finance campaign reform in the country. it was brought as a challenges to citizens united. supreme court had a second look via this montana case and said we are going to stay with citizens united. we think there is no corruption if there
.d. issue. i am surprised that the issue has not been brought up on the voter i.d. law. my view of it is you need an i.d. for everything. opening a bank account, cashing checks. i think the voter i.d. deal covers a lot of programs where a lot of fraud and abuse comes in there. i was curious as to why it hasn't been addressed. there is a lot of defense that i think the republican campaign might have done it to squash any allegations of voter suppression. guest: i think he is absolutely right been very we know from based polling in ohio that well over 75% of voters support voter identification law in ohio. however we do have identification requirements in ohio to indict you have to show either a driver's license, put down the last four digits of your social security number, or you have to show a utility bill showing your address. we do have a identification requirements in ohio. we do not have voter identification requirements but i think overall the legislature has felt it has not been necessary in ohio. we do have pre-registration in ohio. you have to be a resident for 30 days in ohio in whi
of the roadness has been extraordinary. >> right. >> you're right. a big law on health care and not much else. but that was a big thing. >> jonathan chaits, i'm going to echo him but not quote from him. if you look on facebook, jonathan endorsed an argument really took off. i think that's partly because people who do lean one way or in a place now where they're paying attention and want to hear the right argument. i dodge think mayor bloomberg is going to persuade a lot of people in the close here, but for people leaning towards obama it is mobilizing. that is really the point at this phase in an election. i mean we talked about jay-z being on obama's side and to quote jay-z, we are in a love me or leave me alone moment in a mobilizing phase. >> do you think we're in that moment or did you just want to drop jay-z? >> i really do. what i mean is, i really don't believe endorsements, "new york times" endorsed barack obama, i don't think that people are waking up in the morning reading that and going now i'm going to vote. but i do think -- >> given -- >> wait. but just to finish the point i don

? are their pockets for the u.s. takes law enforcement? >> there are exceptions. there are still exceptions. one reason let me now have concluded as the frame that is being used by policymakers, the frame is not about investing. it is about capital expenditures when should be about operating expenditures. the frame is about government as believed. we're trying to work with our customers in those cities where we see receptive ears a meeting the leaders are hungry for really profound changes in the way the city operates. some of these are not the usual suspects. chattanooga, not the city on because you would expect on the left bank or otherwise. they decided to make the investment in building out broadband to every building in the city. piercing the economic benefits. it is not just the city government. it was their other vehicles. they were being smart. connecting the dots are hard. we're trying to break down the silo which tends to be the frame for which they think about it rather than looking across all of the boundaries to say what is it that is going to force collaboration and open the system
nobody speaks about the intelligence blunder the republicans did that put us in a war with raq, law 2000 american soldiers, and their answer was they had poor intelligence. secondly, my question is, why should anybody believe that governor romney would be good at creating jobs what he was 48 in job guest: well, i'll take the question first. governor romney in the middle oh f a tough economy created almost 50,000 new jobs in massachusetts. let's remember. >> on "washington journal" tomorrow morning we'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be
attack as a law enforcement matter, not as part of the war on terror, but as if it is a bank robbery. what we should have done with that suspect, when we learned he was in turkish custody was tell the turkish authorities, we want him. don't send him back to tunisia. this is not a matter of international extradition. this is a matter of taking somebody who has been engaged in war against the united states and we want him. we want hill and want to take him to gitmo to interrogate him. jon: i'm reminded when a couple of the suspect iss in the attack on the uss cole were apprehended and given back to yemen to be held in custody there. they escaped. so here is this tunisia guy, wanted in connection with the attack on our consulate there. apparently we have video and facial recognition software that puts him in our compound the night of the attack and yet he has been released, picked up by the turks but released to tunisia custody? >> this whole thing is like a reversion to before the original 9/11 in 2001. the clinton administration, these terrorist attacks, the world trade center, the fi
